Another Fanling post!
So is there a place in Hong Kong where snobby rich people and not-so-wealthy truck drivers can co-exist? Yes! And that would be Wing Cheong Tea House, located off of a narrow highway leading in and out of Fanling and within walking distance from Hong Kong Golf Club, one of HK’s most exclusive golf clubs. And there isn’t a restaurant within a 2 mile radius of this restaurant so where else can you go?
Fortunately, this isn’t just some restaurant that picked a good spot to run its business. Their food is pretty darn good, especially their pork (fried pork).
The photo looks really orangy because the plate and the spoon is orange and I was underneath an orange tent under a scourging sun at noon. But man, was this salt & pepper pork rice good! It wasn’t too oily, and the portion was just right. Best of all, the pork really is quite tender.
The soup of the day that comes with your rice if you order a set. Really quite “清” and not too heavy on the stomach. Tastes and feels like soup from home … and there wasn’t any sign of MSG (at least I don’t think there is).
And this is what my friend had. Steamed pork and preserved veggie with rice.
Here’s people just chilling.
Remember to bring some insect repellant!
